A few extra walls have been built and we are very close to being finished with them. I have scheduled a structural inspection for next week. I hope the walls pass inspection without issues.
This short shower plumbing wall had to be six inches wide to allow for the water supply pipes and vent.
Stepping back, these are the walls in the master bedroom that form the closet and the bathroom.
Another six inch wall separates the dining room from the solar hall in the living room. It was built to hold both the plumbing for a bar sink if we decided to install one and the electrical outlets so they would not penetrate the outside wall.
Between the kitchen counters and the bar area in the living room, a half wall was built about six inches above the counters for electrical outlets in the kitchen.
We also needed a ceiling in the shower area to hold the horizontal fan and shower light.
I ordered the outside vent for the bathroom fan and a 4 1/8″ hole saw to install it. The electricians will install the fan/shower light combo that I purchased. It is a Panasonic FV-08VRE1.
The fan is hidden behind the shower light in this version. Although not the most energy efficient, it is Energy Star rated. It has an efficiency of about 4 CFM/Watt. The Whisper Green is about 11.5 CFM/Watt.
The existing bathroom fan will be upgraded to a Whisper Green Select with a Humidity Control Module. But this recessed fan will have a humistat on the wall as well as switches for the light and the fan. I have ordered the condensation sensor/timer/light switch for this fan (FV-WCCS2-A) from ebay.
